The fourth track of the Rainbow's End album by Hollow water


Gathering Sunbeams for the Future
By Alan Cookson, Hollow Water 2015

We’re gathering sunbeams for the future,
Energy for your computer,
All of the gadgets you favour,
Tablet, hoover and your shaver.
We’re saving the planet for your children,
Green power for your new kitchen,
Appliances you may find useful,
Necessary or even crucial.

We’re bagging scintillations for tomorrow,
Juice for your eco-friendly homes,
Gizmos you like and use often,
That end up in the drawer or the loft,
We’re cutting the size of your bills,
So long as you don’t mind the hills,
Covered in countless windmill blades,
For decades and decades and decades.

The cost of electric is shocking,
That’s why the people are flocking,
To put panels on their roofs,
It’s a simple obvious truth.
The initial outlay’s not expensive,
If we give you the incentive,
Reduce your carbon footprint,
Just ignore that contract misprint.

The time is approaching one day,
When all of this will go away,
Just need some new technology,
Which will do away with it all,
Just waiting for clever inventions,
Full of essential innovations,
To make them all obsolete,
And be much more neat & discrete.
